To Fight For My Country Sir

Terrific first person account of a 19 year old B-17 navigator in WORLD WAR TWO , surviving a 23,000 foot free fall and parachute jump only to be captured and imprisoned at the famous "Great Escape" prison camp.

The book is a must read for anyone who wants to know what it really felt like to fly combat missions, to be captured and to suffer the rigors of a winter death match under armed guard, to be on an overcrowded cattle car train and transported to the Hell Hole prison at Moosburg, Germany along with 110,000 POW's, eating rancid "soup", fighting dysentery and swarming fleas, starving and finally being rescued by General Patton's Third Army at war's end (includes photo of the General at the camp). It is a riveting story that is hard to put down, written by a great story teller, now a Chicago trial lawyer for 52 years and full of cherished photos. Don Casey has waited 65 years to tell his story, now sharing it with you. The book puts you there, on aerial combat missions, and inside the prison camp! The photos are terrific. Awarded WWII Writer's Award from Sterling Cooper Publishing.

"It is true that wars must be fought by the young and adventurous as I was at 18 years of age. The truism is that to engage in a struggle with a deadly enemy, one has to feel invulnerable, be old enough to know better but be determined to prove his mettle. Combat is a deadly serious business but also the highest form of adventure - at least until it sinks in that the enemy is shooting back with real bullets."

Informative first person account of the tragedy and hope that can come out of war. The pictures put you there alongside Don on his incredible journey.
